NNA050: Matt Carlson "All Moments"

NNA is proud to present our 50th release, Matt Carlson’s “All Moments” long-playing record. Where 2011’s “Particle Language” LP acted as a study in texture and density within experimental synthesizer music, “All Moments” finds Carlson engaging with the more traditional musical materials of melody, harmony, and rhythm, calling to mind his work as one half of Portland, OR duo Golden Retriever. The pieces on this record range from shorter pop études to longer, more open improvisatory synth studies, retaining a sense of playfulness and expressiveness within a highly focused and calculated framework. Recorded to four-track cassette and primarily hand-played with very little-to-no auto arpeggiation, “All Moments” captures an often-overlooked warmth and human quality in electronic music, emphasized further by Carlson’s use of modal and tonal vocal studies, electronically transformed by his use of the vocoder. The result is a well-rounded collection of colorful, exuberant electronic music.
